Now on to the story’s topic: to share or not to share your personal life with your boss….
Allison Dunfield, Special to The Globe and Mail
When his boss found him on Facebook, a 26-year old worker with a Toronto theatre company thought nothing of accepting her request to make him her “friend.”
Now, he deeply regrets it.
“I ‘friended’ her, not really thinking anything of it, but she went through and looked at all my stuff,” he says.
That stuff included several photographs of him dancing in his living room, others of him “just standing around, looking forlorn off into the distance.”
His boss freely commented on them. About his dancing, she wrote: “Nice moves. I didn’t know you had it in you.” About looking forlorn: “You have that far-off look in your eyes.”
It all made him very uncomfortable, he says, as though she were invading a part of his life where she just did not belong.
